A woman named Becki is lounging by the pool at the Fontainebleau Hotel when she decides to proposition a strapping pool attendant. Go on a date with her...and her husband. What begins as an unconventional proposition will soon throw them all into the international spotlight. And that’s because the couple is none other than Jerry Falwell Jr. and his wife Becki, two of the most powerful figures in Evangelical America. Wondery presents In God We Lust, hosted by Brooke Siffrin and Aricia Skidmore-Williams of Even the Rich. A story of an alluring sex scandal, power, money and a very public fall from grace. When word of their affair fell into the wrong hands it led to political extortion and a public outing that brought Jerry Falwell Jr.’s empire crashing down. Listen at wondery.fm/IGWL_TrueCrimeBS

Nina Gilden Seavey was twelve on May 5, 1970, the day an Air Force building in St. Louis burned to the ground. Her dad represented a young man accused of the crime: Howard Mechanic. Facing serious federal time, Howard went on the run and became one of the longest-running fugitives in U.S. history. As an adult, Nina picked up the trail. What ever happened to Howard Mechanic?This eight-part series is the tangled story of her search for answers. Hundreds of Freedom of Information requests. Hundreds of thousands of pages of documents. FBI surveillance and confidential informants. Cold War spies, conspiracy theories and the murder of a civil rights icon. And the sacrifices America makes in the name of national security.

MAN-Slaughter tells intertwining stories about how one gunshot on a cold Wisconsin night in 1970 dramatically changed multiple lives. A bullet brutally tore through decorated law enforcement veteran LaVerne Stordock. Decades later, his niece, Dorothy Marcic, transformed herself into an amateur detective in a quest for truth and closure about that night. At the center of Dorothy’s investigation is Suzanne Brandon, LaVerne’s second wife, who confessed to the shooting -- and who Dorothy believes completely escaped justice. As it follows Dorothy’s discoveries, MAN-Slaughter explores questions around the psychology of crime, the ways women are made responsible in families, and the lasting impact of trauma.A final encounter between Suzanne and Dorothy reveals a complex connection that even that gunshot cannot shatter.

As far as Carol and her refusal to take polygraphs goes.... No one should take a polygraph test. Never ever under any circumstance.....ever. No way no how. There's a reason they're not admissible in court. It's barely junk science at best.

Would it at all be possible that he hid the bodies at cemeteries? My mom passed recently and my dad has commented several times how surprised he is that the ground hasn’t settled more in the last 2 months. He’s waiting until it does to decorate it a little. If Israel went to graveyards to see if there were fresh graves, wouldn’t it be fairly easy to dig up the grave a little, add the body or body parts and then cover it back up? Could that be the way they are all connected?

Ok so he's a bank robber, arsonist, rapist and serial killer, but only at this time do we learn that he is also guilty of fishing without a liscense. WTF FBI and media?! Why has this charge never been leveled against him?

I'm dissapointed that this podcast has devolved 8nto just another web-sleuth vehicle. The pondering and agonizing over silly details with the conceit that he will discover all Keyes victims, is delusional and obviously meant to justify how Josh plans to spend his time, movung forward. Sadly, I find it is my time to get off this train.
